CHENNAI: In a move that should cheer up voters from southern Tamil Nadu, the railway board on Wednesday announced another new train from Tambaram to Nagercoil with a stop in Madurai. Southern Railway said the train will have its inaugural run on Friday and its regular service will begin on March 11. It will run three days a week and will provide another option to passengers travelling to Madurai, Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari.Senior railway officials told TOI that the lone BJP member of Parliament from Tamil Nadu and Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan had lobbied hard for a new train to either Kanyakumari or Nagercoil. Radhakrishnan will flag off the train on Friday. Passengers had been demanding a new train to the southern districts for a year now. This was after Southern Railway completed the doubling of lines from Chennai to Madurai. This opened up line capacity for railways to operate more trains....

However, apart from the Chennai-Madurai Tejas Express and a few unreserved trains, regular services have not been announced. This was mainly because of constraints in the number of coaches as well as terminal capacity, senior officials said. Rake of the new train will be maintained in Tirunelveli. Madurai division officials will have to move the rake after maintenance to Nagercoil before departure.The train will have one first AC-cum-second AC coach, two three-tier AC coaches, nine sleeper class coaches, two general second class coaches, and two luggage cum brake vans. The train, 22657 Tambaram - Nagercoil Express, will leave Tambaram from at 7.20pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and reach Nagercoil at 7:55am the next day.

Thoothukudi District Passengers’ Welfare Association has sought reintroduction of Thoothukudi – Coimbatore daytime intercity express train. This train service (149 /150) was discontinued in 1992 for gauge conversion. It was a major link between these two cities during the day and hence was a successful passenger train, M. Piramanayagam, secretary of the association told The Hindu here on Wednesday.
Currently, Thoothukudi has a daily night link express (TN-CBE-TN) train (16611/16612) to Coimbatore, but there is no day train connecting these cities. Considering the demands of passengers, efforts should be made to reintroduce the Thoothukudi-Coimbatore train.
Besides,

the association also sought introduction of one more overnight train from Thoothukudi to Tambaram daily via Madurai. Thoothukudi being a large port city has only one daily overnight train to Chennai.
As a result, passengers were left at the mercy of costly bus services and the waiting list in the Thoothukudi- Chennai Pearlcity superfast express train (12693/12694) was always high.
Such a direct train would keep the activity of linking and de-linking the slip coaches to the main train at Vanchi Maniyachi junction at bay, he also said.
Much to the agony of passengers, there is no refreshment stall on the premises of Thoothukudi railway station. Though being an ‘A’ grade station, lack of this basic facility has forced passengers to get off the station to buy water, milk and snacks at a higher price.
Of the three platforms here, signals have been installed only to facilitate two platforms. The third platform remained non-operational in the absence of signals.
He demanded adequate facilities to accommodate 24 bogies on the first platform. Encroachments should be removed to ease vehicular traffic on the narrow road leading to the railway station.
These demands were represented to the Additional Divisional Railway Manager, P.V. Murali Krishna, Southern Railway, Madurai, recently, he also said.
